Ah… summer weekends in the Northwest! This is the stuff paradise (AKA the Evergreen state of Washington) is made of… Steilacoom’s annual Garage Sale Summer Weekend!
Today we ventured out to this locally-known thrift/garage mecca and found some amazing items as well as amazing views! If you are ever in Washington in mid August I would highly suggest traveling down to this quaint little town right on the coast of the Puget Sound. Not only will you have a full-day of garage & yard sale shopping at people’s homes, on street corners or even in the parking lots! -BUT- if the weather treats you right (which is usually does in mid August) then you will also be taking in the sights and sounds of the Puget Sound right at your feet!
If shopping is taking a toll on you… then take a ferry ride over to Anderson Island, visit a number of historic places on the national registry (since Steilacoom is the first incorporated town in the state of Washington) or kick off your shoes and dip them in the cool, salt water at the local beach!
As a “found” artist and lover of all things Thrift/Garage or Yard… I for one will be back next summer for what may soon become the annual family (or girl’s) summer day out!
